Update 03/23/2022:  Scott underwent treatment consisting of 7 weeks of weekly chemotherapy and daily radiation.  At the end of his treatment the scans revealed no evidence of active disease.  The next treatment plan called for monthly immunotherapy infusions.  He went in for 3 month post treatment scans and those results indicated the cancer was back with new areas.  Both lungs had spots and a lymph node in his neck were detected.  After a quick biopsy, the oncologist set in place another plan of treatment.  This would be a pill two times a day.  After three months of this treatment, it was time for another scan.  This scan revealed the cancer was continuing to grow.  Now we would move to another treatment plan.  Weekly chemo in three week cycles.  Week one he receives two different chemos, week two he receives one chemo, and week three is an off week to allow his body to heal.  We are hopeful this treatment plan stops and even begins to reduce the cancer.  

In April of 2021, Scott began feeling a pressure spot in the center of his lung/chest cavity.  He made an appointment with his primary care physician for Tuesday, April 20th.  They quickly ruled out any heart issues.  On the X-Ray there was a spot in the lung that needed further evaluation.  Friday, April 23rd, he went for a CT scan.  From there, he was referred on to a pulmonologist.  On April 27th, the pulmonologist gave us the preliminary diagnosis this spot was most likely lung cancer.  Further testing and scans would be needed to determine exact type and staging.  He subsequently had a PET scan and bronchoscope.  On May 19th, (yes one month after his initial doctor visit) the results indicate lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer squamous cell carcinoma, stage 3b.  The tumor is about the size of a golf ball in the lower left lobe.  There were a couple of lymph nodes also impacted, one of them in the left lobe and another in the right.  At this time, the oncologist does not believe it has traveled outside of the lungs, which is a huge win!  This is treatable and most likely curable.
